Harry L. Horning Memorial Award

Established in 1938, this award annually recognizes the author(s) of the best paper(s) relating to the better mutual adaptation of fuels and internal combustion engines presented at a meeting of the Society or any of its sections during any calendar year. It may be presented to an individual for distinguished accomplishment in engine fuel relationships, in which case the individual is requested to present a Horning Memorial Lecture on an appropriate subject at a designated meeting of the Society. The award preserves the memory of the dedication of SAE's 1925 President, Harry L. Horning, to the pursuit of improved mutual adaptability of engines and fuels and serves as a motivation for others to follow in his footsteps.

The award consists of a framed certificate, bronze medal and a $1200 honorarium and is presented at an SAE event.
